Who's The Smoopy?

I hardly talk about work here. That is because I don't want to jeopardize my job and also because I am a government employee I feel like I have to be extra careful. I love this job. I love everything about it. Granted it has only been about six months but I enjoy being challenged on a daily basis. Plus I think I just might be pretty good at it. That being said I am moved to share non-detailed items with you.

Yesterday I got a voice mail from a business associate that ended with "ta, ta for now." Weirder still because it was from a man. Maybe he just slipped into some social routine at the last minute there. You know like when people accidentally say, "love you" because they are so accustomed to ending calls that way. And who hasn't at one time answered their phone at home with their business persona? Still it totally caught me off guard. I wonder if he hung up and then was kicking himself for the slip.
